I watched the Ohio vs Hampton game and have a few observations.

On offense they have a B12 size OL and they call mostly running plays. Their main RB is Ouellete and he likes to put his shoulder down and run over defenders. Ohio used 2 QBs Maxwell and Rourke. Maxwell likes to throw deep and is not accurate when he does that. It cost Ohio an interception and resulted in Rourke getting into the game. Rourke is faster than Maxwell and can run the ball. He showed skill on option plays. He made good decisions on when to pitch the ball vs when to keep it. Rourke has a decent arm when he has time in the pocket. When Hampton applied pressure and Rourke had to scramble his throws were not accurate. Their main WRs were Odum and White. White was a RB converted to a WR so he is more of a threat to dodge tackles after the catch. Overall they ran 53 times and threw only 19 times so they are the opposite of the KU offense.

The Ohio defense looked solid. They have a safety Hagan that was the MAC freshman of the year last season and is their version of Mike Lee. He is athletic and plays tough. Their DL looked decent and their LBs are good sized and like to hit.

It was hard to tell how good Ohio is because Hampton is so bad. They play Purdue on Friday so that will tell us a lot more about Ohio.

So not a big difference but two weeks in a row our opponents get to sit and watch us play with an extra day of rest.

Last year Ohio's option offense killed us. Frank Solich never did give up his Nebraska roots on offense. Like I said in my earlier post I don't like our lack of speed on lateral pursuit. On the flip side if Ohio doesn't pass much that helps our secondary.

I don't know. Dineen reminded me of a lot of KU linebackers past. He was a stud! Loneker was no slouch. I'm Ok with our linebacker play. We'll see as the competition gets better.

Linebacker play was horrendous against CMU. Overall lack of unit speed.

Kansas lost in Lawrence, 37-21, to Ohio, in 2016. Ohio is 2-0 all-time versus the Jayhawks, having also won at Memorial Stadium in 1967.

The Jayhawks have lost 44 consecutive games away from Lawrence.

Ohio U is favored to win the MAC conference this year. I believe they are a nine point favorite next week over Kansas. Coach Solich will have his players motivated and ready to beat any BG12 team since his days at Nebraska went so badly as their HC.

Like ku, they lost last time out so both teams will be trying to turn it around.

Ohio hammered Hampton so no it's not a turn around for them. You are so naive

Actually Solich was fired after going 9-3 with a new AD who had a personality conflict with him. Solich interviewed here before and we missed out.
